After what I went through with my nickel sized kidneys stone lodged in my lower ureter in 2012, I didn’t want to have to deal with them any longer. So it is important that I found something that works for me. I started using molasses instead of sugar in everything. I then slowly added honey to my diet. I personally do not use agave because it is too sweet and I usually add too much. And some use stevia or xylotol. My sugar addiction slowly faded.
Soon, my eczema gradually faded, I would experience flare ups when I went off the wagon and relapsed with my sugar. Usually, this happened when going out to eat or tasting something I made for my husband with sugar. I would also experience a flare up the week before and gradually fade again following the full moon. If you don’t believe me, mark your calendar for the full moon and then journal how you feel the prior week. Common symptoms for me has been allergy and sinus, stuffy head, fatigue as well as previous skin flare ups.
But one thing is connected to all of these things that I became aware of about 10 days into my 30 Day Faith Detox. I had been praying for answers, healing, and for God to show me what He wanted me to do.
I was sitting in bed and about 10 o’clock this evening when out of no where the word PARASITE came to mind.
‘PARASITE!, WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?’ was my first thought, now I had gone mad.
The only answer to this thought entering into my mind that I can come up with is that it was given by God himself. I had not given much thought to this in over 10 years. I did work at Dr Christopher’s Herb Shop Connection in college and so I was vaguely familiar with parasite cleansing. However, I had never entertained the thought and concluded long ago that only people in foreign 3rd world countries exposed to sewage need to take herbs for parasites.
Needless to say, I almost completely disregarded this thought.
Thankfully I pushed through, I decided to google a little bit about parasites and was surprised to find out so many of the symptoms I and my family was experiencing and so I kept researching and found evidence of links between parasites and so many common ailments. If you don’t believe me take this challenge? Google the word parasite and your ailements and see what comes up.
This doesn’t need to get you scared or paranoid like it did for me. The shock and paranoia faded as I became more educated and aware of the problem and the remedies. II simply use the scary word, parasite, for myself and my kids because it motivates me to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
Think about it like this. Parasite=INFECTION=mold, fungus, yeast overgrowth, germ, bacteria, virus, worms, etc. They all infect us and live off us. They can mostly be addressed in similar ways. They mostly thrive on moist and warm environments with a source of food. We have all heard of these problems, right? Well, now take another challenge, try and google mold, yeast or virus and your common ailments. What do you find?
Yeast and mold feed on similar environments and spread quickly meaning they co-exist nicely. It also commonly results in more than one parasite present within a person at any given time or place. Hard to fight, parasites have existed since the beginning and they multiply quickly and adapt to survive. Parasites begin at microscopic levels and are easily undetected. If left untreated, they can spread and take over quickly. You get the idea.
